Jumpers
1. Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC1)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS.
You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters
by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The RAM data in CMOS, that include
system setup information such as system passwords, is powered by the
onboard button cell battery.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 2-3 (default) to pins 1-2. Keep the cap on
pins 1-2 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 2-3.
3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup
to re-enter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC1 jumper
default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking.
For system failure due to overclocking, use the C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall)
feature. Shut down and reboot the system so BIOS can automatically reset
parameter settings to default values.

2. USB device wake-up (3-pin USBPW12, USBPW34, USBPW56, USBPW78)
Set these jumpers to +5V to wake up the computer from S1 sleep mode (CPU
stopped, DRAM refreshed, system running in low power mode) using the
connected USB devices. Set to +5VSB to wake up from S3 sleep mode (no
power to CPU, DRAM in slow refresh, power supply in reduced power mode).
All jumpers are set to pins 1-2 (+5V) by default because not all computers have
the appropriate power supply to support this feature.
The USBPW12 and USBPW34 jumpers are for the rear USB ports. The
USBPW56 and USBPW78 jumpers are for the internal USB header that you
can connect to the front USB ports.
1.
2.
This feature requires a power supply that can provide at least 2A on the
+5VSB lead when these jumpers are set to +5VSB. Otherwise, the system
does not power up.

Important notes on Serial ATA solution:
•
In legacy operating system (Win 98, WinME, WinNT, DOS)
environment, using SATA will disable one of the IDE channels from
ICH5 south bridge chipset. See BIOS section for correct setting.
• The Serial ATA cable is smaller and more flexible allowing easier
routing inside the chassis. The lower pin count of the Serial ATA
cable eliminates the problem caused by the wide, flat ribbon cables
of the Parallel ATA interface.
•
Hot plug support for Serial ATA drive and connections are not
available in this motherboard.
•
Install Windows® XP™ Service Pack 1 when using Serial ATA.
The Serial ATA cable is purchased separately.

4. IDE connectors (40-1 pin PRI_IDE1, SEC_IDE1)
This connector supports the provided UltraDMA100/66/33 IDE ribbon cable.
Connect the cable’s blue connector to the primary (recommended) or secondary
IDE connector, then connect the gray connector to the UltraDMA100/66/33 slave
device (hard disk drive) and the black connector to the UltraDMA100/66/33 master
device. It is recommended that you connect non-UltraDMA100/66/33 devices to
the secondary IDE connector. If you install two hard disks, you must configure the
second drive as a slave device by setting its jumper accordingly. Refer to the hard
disk documentation for the jumper settings. BIOS supports specific device bootup.
If you have more than two UltraDMA100/66/33 devices, purchase another
UltraDMA100/66/33 cable. You may configure two hard disks to be both master
devices with two ribbon cables – one for the primary IDE connector and another
for the secondary IDE connector.
Pin 20 on each IDE connector is removed to match the covered hole on the
UltraDMA cable connector. This prevents incorrect orientation when you
connect the cables.
2.
The hole near the blue connector on the UltraDMA100/66/33 cable is
intentional.
3.
For UltraDMA100/66 IDE devices, use the 80-conductor IDE cable.
NOTE: Orient the red markings
(usually zigzag) on the IDE
ribbon cable to PIN 1.

BIOS Setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware hub (FWH) that you can
update using the provided utility described in section “2.1 Managing and updating
your BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring
your system, or prompted to “Run Setup”. This section explains how to configure
your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you may want to change
the configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you may want to
enable the security password feature or change the power management settings.
This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so
that the computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS
RAM of the firmware hub.
The firmware hub on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up
the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program.
Press <Delete> during the Power-On Self Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility.
Otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing <Ctrl> +
<Alt> + <Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can
also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this last option only if
the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. It is a menudriven program, which means you can scroll through the various sub-menus and
make your selections from the available options using the navigation keys.
The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most conditions to
ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes unstable after changing
any BIOS settings, load the default settings to ensure system compatibility and
stability. Select the Load Default Settings item under the Exit Menu. See
section “2.7 Exit Menu.”
The BIOS setup screens shown in this chapter are for reference purposes only,
and may not exactly match what you see on your screen.
